Metta World Peace is praising Khloe Kardashian for sticking by his buddy, Lamar Odom’s side following his brush with death back in October.
While at Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Gala on Sunday night, the Lakers player, who skipped NBA All-Star weekend to be at the exclusive event, opened up to HipHollywood about how the Kardashians helped in Odom’s recovery. “Khloe did her thing, shout out to Khloe,” he said.
Metta, formerly known as Ron Artest, continued, “I was actually down on Khloe for a little bit. Said some things about the Kardashians; I was under pressure, under stress and frustration because my boy was on his death bed.”
He added, “Khloe brung him back to life. I love the Kardashians, forever.”
Metta’s tone was much different on Sunday night than several months ago, when he slammed the reality star’s family for keeping Odom’s children from seeing their father while he fought for his life at LA’s Cedars-Sinai. “The only Kardashian that needs to be there is Khloe,” he told the Los Angeles Daily News back in October.
He told the publication, “Not every Kardashian needs to be around. They need to keep it simple, so Lamar’s children can see him whenever they want to see him. They’re waiting in line to see their own father.”
As for the how the 36-year-old is holding up, Peace says “Lamar is doing well, his family is doing well, his kids are doing well.”
